with. why on earth, using commonsense, has george w. bush not come to the recognition that dick cheney pulled the wool over him, moving him to do whatever cheney would have done were he formally in charge. i have a suspicion that the president knows exactly what i am talking about now and yes, dick cheney was the joker in the deck, would bring down his whole deck of cards.

day in dallas. the george w. bush presidential library and museum opens at southern methodist university. elizabeth pran is live in washington. good morning elizabeth. >> good morning patti ann. what a rare day. not only are all living presidents together but we will sea a lot of president george w. bush who stayed out of the spotlight since his presidency. president obama speaking wednesday night saying quote regardless of political differences president bush loves his country and loves his people. the library will open today on the campus inside the sprawling facility will be memorabilia from his campaign and early days in office. there will be a full scale reproduction of the oval office but also some very personal exhibits surrounding 9-11 complete with wreckage from the world trade center. the first lady says it's very important to remember the day that certainly changed history. >> george realized the children who were on the tour with him weren't alive on september 11th. so they had no direct memory of it like all of us do. it's important i think to remind people of it.
the george w. bush administration after the opening -- i was thinking about the library. the fact is the economy itself, the fact that we are talking much more now about syria and we are tacking about guns and we are talking about some of the other issues. we haven't talked about the fact that the gdp has also been hit and the fact that we still are looking for economic growth that is not there yet. for this president he is in a position right now, where the american public wants to see more than anything a discussion about the thing that they thought this the election was about in 2012 and that they thought the election was about in 2010 and 2008 which is the economy. this is obviously not getting him into that position. >> yes, but you mr. kristol is going to say but you got to do two things at the same time. let's talk specifically about iran which i think everybody agrees in the middle east is the real key factor here. as i discussed with the ambassador. december certaining is an in it tell against -- discern ising is an intelligence matter. assess ising whether or not syria u
